Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Admi Party leader, Arvind Kejriwal said that the government had no game plan which resulted in people struggling.

"No irony can be bigger than the Prime Minister taking the blessing of NCP leader, Sharad Pawar to fight the menace of black money," Kejriwal also said.

Meanwhile, BSP leader Mayawati said that Modi is losing the support of people. His rally at Ghazipur had a poor turn out because of his decision, she also said. "On one hand he speaks of fighting corruption and on the other his volunteers brought people in trains for the rally without paying for the tickets," she also said.
